Nevada School Performance Framework Star Ratings are now out, so where does the schools in our district rate?
The Star Rating system is “designed to summarize the performance of a school based on multiple indicators and measures specific to their grade levels”. NSPF Star Rating aligns with the federal “Every Student Succeeds Act”. The five-start rating is for schools that exceed all expectations, a one-star school does not meet the state performance standards.
Since COVID hit, the state of Nevada has waived these reviews, sighting disruption cause by the pandemic. The last time the Star Rating came out was four years ago, at that time 120 schools received five-star ratings, this year that dropped to 85 schools.
So where does the schools in White Pine County rate? Two schools received the five-star rating, Lund High School and Learning Bridge Middle School. These schools’ rate in the top 10% of Nevada schools. Baker Elementary School was the only school in our area to earn four-stars, Mcgill Elementary and White Pine High School came in the middle with three-stars. Two-stars went to Learning Bridge Elementary, Lund Elementary and White Pine Middle School. Coming in at the bottom with one-star is D.E.N. and Lund Middle School.
With the Star Rating system back in place, the state of Nevada will be more equipped to determine what is needed to continue to improve our youth’s education.
Superintendent of public instruction, Jhone Ebert stated” Our focus, across the state will be on advancing academic recovery to put our students on a path to excellence.”
